If you want to boot KoOS directly with grub, you need to do this:

  • get and install the syslinux package
  • copy /usr/lib/syslinux/memdisk to /boot
  • point your config "root"-entry to your FAT or NTFS-partition, where the image resides, and write the kernel-entry with (hd0,0)/boot/memdisk or where ever your linux partition is.
  • add this lines to your grub.conf:

Code:

label KoOS
  root (hd0,0)  # edit this to your correct partition, given example is hda1
  kernel /boot/memdisk
  initrd /boot/kolibri.img
  • reboot and enjoy

BTW, there is one limitation in this method: The kernel cannot save its boot settings :(
